24 March 2020: Home learning

Tuesday 24 March 2020

Good morning!

Here are your tasks for today.  Remember … each day we will set three main tasks. In addition to these, we would like you to read for at least twenty minutes per day, practise your times tables facts and weekly spellings (uploaded each Monday).

Happy learning.

Mrs Welsby & Mrs Rowley


Year 3 – find your maths fractions packs. On page one, when you’ve written the correct fraction for each shape, draw a line to match the equivalent fractions. Remember, Equivalent fractions are fractions with different numbers representing the same part of a whole. They have different numerators and denominators, but their fractional values are the same. For example, think about the fraction 1/2. It means half of something. You can also say that 6/12 is half, and that 50/100 is half.

Year 4 – find your maths fractions packs. Complete the Counting up and down in hundredths and converting decimals tenths and hundredths to fractions. Complete questions three and four from the problems on page 1.

Don’t forget to mark yesterday’s work.        Year 3 answers,   Year 4 answers.


The reading task today is a RIC. Read the text Coronavirus Storybook. Then answer the RIC questions in your books. Remember to write today’s date! I will post some suggested answers tomorrow. Can you complete the challenge?


For writing today, please finish your newspaper report. You should have already written the first two paragraphs.

In your third paragraph, you need to include two quotes from eyewitnesses. Work from your plan (or mine) to remind you who you might use.

Your last paragraph is about ‘what next?’ Use your notes to help you. You only need to write a few sentences in this paragraph.

Don’t forget to re-read your work to make sure it says what you want it to say.
